Travel Assignments
Can I be assigned in my hometown?

Yes. Some of the hospitals we staff hire local healthcare professionals. Your recruiter will know if the assignment in which you're interested is eligible for local travel.

Can I bring along a friend?

Absolutely. We encourage you to share this important journey by traveling with a colleague, spouse or close friend. And if you know another allied clinician seeking employment, we encourage you to take advantage of our Refer a Friend program.

How do I get to my assignment?

If traveling away from home, AMN recommends that you drive to your assignment. This gives you the freedom to explore a new area on your days off. If you accept an assignment in a major city where parking is scarce and public transportation is readily available (New York City, for example), consider leaving your car at home. AMN reimburses the travel expenses to your assignment regardless of how you choose to get there.

How long are travel assignments?

Most assignments are 13 weeks, but could range from four to 26 weeks or longer. If there's an assignment you're interested in, contact your recruiter to discuss the full range of options available to you.

How should I prepare for my assignment?

Once you commit to an assignment, you will receive a confirmation via email with all pertinent information about your assignment. Your recruiter will then work with you to prepare you for your assignment.

I chose an assignment. Now what?

Your credentials, along with your selected start date, are sent to our client (the facility you've chosen). The client then reviews your application and interviews you via a phone call. Your recruiter will prepare you for each step of the hiring process.

What are the chances I'll get the assignment I want?

Your chances are excellent, especially if your professional discipline is in high demand. Even if we don't have your specific position in the location of your choice, we'll contact facilities in that area, present your credentials and search for assignments. We're not happy until you are.

How much does AMN pay?

AMNs' allied travelers are among the most satisfied in the industry. Pay rates are always competitive and vary by assignment, specialty, location, and experience. Talk to your experienced recruiter for details.

Do you offer housing?

Yes! AMN happily provides our clinicians with competitive housing. 

What housing options do you offer?

Clinicians will receive a monthly stipend they can use towards their own housing accommodations. This is considered to be a part of the clinician's overall compensation package. 

I don't need housing. Do you offer an allowance?

Yes. If you arrange and pay for your own housing, you will receive a monthly housing stipend or subsidy. The subsidy varies by position and assignment location.

Am I making any kind of commitment when I apply to AMN Healthcare?

No. A processed application only means you have access to exciting allied health travel assignment choices. You can commit to an assignment when you're ready to travel.

Are there minimum qualifications?

To be assigned to an allied travel position by AMN, you must be a graduate of a U.S.-accredited allied healthcare program, hold a valid professional practice license or certification, and present proof of your right to work in the United States (the most common forms of this are your birth certificate, social security card, or U.S. passport).

How long is my commitment to AMN?

Your commitment is equal to the length of the assignment you agree to take. For travel assignments, this is typically 13 weeks, but can vary to be either longer or shorter depending on the facility’s needs.

I've found an AMN opportunity I'm interested in. Where do I start?

After completing your application, AMN will provide you access to skills checklists specific to your discipline, as well as a professional reference request form.
